1st game of the new season :
Traded / matched figs on Betfair ..
30 mins before the start ..£ 3k
Hampshire probably win the toss, (am not really watching), but have shorted from 1.85 to 1.76
5 mins to go .. £12k traded .. this is poor ..
Hampshire did win the toss, and elected to field.
9 overs in, Essex 39-0 .. 1.88 .. £26k traded .. which, is eye-wateringly low.
For a game on sky etc .. IPL major draw .. market-makers/seeders required, but, they have no reason for doing so, so, dont.
Essex scored a decentish, 244 .. on a high-scoring, small ground, and Carbury/Vince, just toy with the the opposition, to get Hampshire home, with 10 overs to spare. Huge win for Hampshire.
Total matched, £1m.
